|In response to Re: Toilet Flange|
: It is not just a pipe, there is a flared end with about a 1/2" flat surface. I can not find a flange that will either fit in or around this device. I can not cut the pipe without removing the ceramic tile and subflooring again, as it is not accessible.
This sounds like it could be a regular metal ring closet flange--minus the metal ring. I've been to places where the ring rusted and the homeowner just pulled it off and threw it away, bolting the toilet to the floor.
: The "super flange" is a trade name. It is essentially a flat metal flange. It does not slip in or around the pipe, but rather sits on top of the pipe.
: : : I just replaced the subflooring and put ceramic tile down in my bathroom. The previous homeowner had a non-flanged ABS connection and the toilet was secured directly to the subfloor. I feel like I should have replaced the connection with a new flange, but now it is too late. My hardware store suggested a "super flange" that is sealed against the existing pipe and then screwed to the floor.
: : : Will this really work or did I screw up and need to pull the ceramic tile?
